This is a vintage 1967 Gibson ES-330 TDC hollow body electric guitar. This 100% all original example, serial number 424413, is in extremely excellent condition and includes the original hard case. Probably custom ordered, this remarkably rare ES-330 features several distinguishing details, including; an original B7 Bigsby vibrato tailpiece, an original Varitone tone control and an original black neck heel “stinger.” With only several other examples being documented with a Varitone, none of those featured a Bigsby.
With no breaks, no cracks, and no repairs, this no-issues example is in extremely excellent cosmetic condition with only evidence of playing wear on the back of the neck. Aside from extensive capo burn along the bass side of the neck, this guitar is near mint. The attractive hand-rubbed Cherry Red finish is unfaded and displays near showroom sheen. This fantastic collector’s guitar features a slim 1 9/16″ nut width. The action is perfect and the Bigsby is setup for breezy vibrato. Absolutely inspirational to play, everything about this guitar is fantastic. It weighs 7 lbs. 3 oz. and the original P-90 pickups sound incredibly musical and transparent. The guitar includes the original Gibson-badged smooth gray hard case with yellow interior.
This all original example includes; an original chrome ABR-1 tune-o-matic bridge, (4) original witch hat knobs, (2) original P-90s with chrome dog ear covers, (6) individual Kluson tuning machines, the original Bigsby Vibrato tailpiece and all original hardware, this guitar is 100% all original.
